ACLU Jumps Into The Brandeis Brouhaha

The Massachusetts Chapter of the ACLU has joined FIRE in condemning Brandeis University for punishing a professor for what seems to be constitutionally-protected speech. Brandeis neither provided the professor with a hearing at which he could defend himself, nor told him in writing the substance of the accusations against him.

Yet he was punished.

The tone of the comments at the ACLU link above is telling--and explains why FIRE exists.

What an irony! A type of speech (anti-racist) normally forced to be promoted gets a professor in trouble. Sad. Very sad.
